The family of a man who died following a stabbing at a block of flats in Hillaby Close in Toxteth have paid tribute to him.

Liam Humphries, 28, from the Liverpool area, died in hospital following the incident on Sunday, 10 December.

In a tribute, Liam’s family said, “Our Teddy bear Liam died on 10th December.

“He was the most caring, loving beautiful soul. The light has gone from our lives, the room has gone dark forever and the world a more empty place.  There is no light left for us.

“As a family we are devastated and heartbroken by the loss of Liam.  He was amazing and so, so loved and will be forever missed.”

A 38-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of the murder of Liam. The man, who is from the Toxteth area, has also been arrested on suspicion of two counts of s18 attempt wounding with intent.

He is currently in custody where he is being questioned by detectives.

A man in his 30s remains in a critical but stable condition in hospital. A woman, also in her 30s, remains in hospital in a serious but stable condition.
